The Old Days, Hot Groups, and Managers' Lib.
Leavitt, Harold J.
Administrative Science Quarterly, v41 n2 p288-300 Jun 1996
Describes Douglas McGregor's group at Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the 1940s and the group at Carnegie's Graduate School of Industrial Administration in the 1960s. Both showed the lively, task-obsessed characteristics of "hot groups." Both occupied participants' hearts and minds, held to high standards, and were extremely productive. Researchers should study supportive conditions in large organizations. (10 references) (MLH)
